6/12 Eliot Spitzer on Fiscal Cliff & Fading Chances for Financial Prosecutions

June 12, 2012

Former governor Eliot Spitzer on Dems strong negotiating position in face of fiscal cliff; expiration of Bush tax cuts and debt ceiling vote, especially given Republican discomfort with current deal triggering automatic cuts to federal spending.  To Obama he says, layout firm agenda, promote Dems strengths and to Schneiderman, stop promoting and do something.  Also, DOJ’s willful resistance to take on important prosecutions.  In the better half, Obamacare is good with some insurance companies, American’s wealth plummets, Michigan GOP blocks Gary Johnson, don’t say “sea” to Republicans in Virginia and Rick Scott REALLY wants to purge voter roles. Your calls and IMs.
